Out Of Control Fireplace

An apartment fire means two families will be spending Christmas elsewhere this weekend. It happened at the Plantation Townhomes on Loblolly Lane on Tyler's southwest side. Fire investigators say residents of a downstairs apartment tried to restart their fireplace using some additional wood, and the embers from the previous night's fire. When that didn't work, a resident sprayed lighter fluid on the embers and the fire got out of control. It spread through the wall to the upstairs apartment causing a water pipe to break. Both apartments suffered smoke, fire and water damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
